ESEA Season 2 Announced

ESEA announces Season Two, with a new sponsor, larger prize pool money and more divisions in the second season.

“After a wildly successful first season” Craig Levine, ESEA owner announced, I am proud to announce ESEA League Season 2 presented by SteelSeries featuring over $20,000 in cash prizes!“

ESEA increased their prize pool twenty times – from $1,000 to $20,000 – due to their new sponsor, SteelSeries. This season will be different than last, however; the league will be split into 3 divisions: open main and invite. This will also be the first season that Counter-strike: Source and Team Fortress 2 will be featured games alongside Counter Strike 1.6.

ESEA has separated the invite, main, and open Counter Strike divisions through a system similar to that of CAL.  ESEA officials will invite twelve teams to play in ESEA—Invite, thirty two teams will play in ESEA—Main, based on their season one performance, and the open division will feature sixty four teams on a first come, first serve basis.

Counter Strike: Source and Team Fortress 2 will feature sixty four and thirty two teams, respectively, on a first come first serve basis.

There is an $8 per season entry fee per player and all participants must be Premium to sign up and compete.  The regular season is set to begin in February and run through March with April playoffs.

So basically its $29 to play in this league depending if you pay for ESEA on a monthly basis or not. Lets say you were in the open division and went all the way to championships and you have to pay for premium for those three months along with the initial entry. This is really dumb IMO. I mean yeah $8 seems cheap but then when you add the premium payments...ugh
